on foreign policy, and my opponents have a different view -- even on foreign policy my opponents have a different view. he says it was tragic how i when did it -- how i ended the war in iraq. i am going to use the money to pay down our debt and to put more people back to work, rebuilding roads and bridges and schools and runways, because after a decade of war, it is time to do nation-building right here at home. [applause] that is a choice we now face. that is what this election comes down to. the other side, they like to tell you, and they are going to spend a lot of money to get these checks for people who can afford to write a $10 million checks, and they are going to tell you is bigger tax cuts and regulations is the only way to go. now they are going to tell you since government cannot do everything it should do almost nothing. their theory is if you cannot afford health care, we hope you do not get sick. there are some companies polluting the air, but that is the price of progress. maybe you cannot afford to go to college. your parents will play a. that is not who we are. now th
opportunity. >> well, and foreign policy clearly is going to be an area where mitt romney will want to make a turn in terms of the narrative of the campaign. one other issue that is now coming into the forefront is the benghazi attack and news over the weekend that the four americans including the u.s. ambassador there who were killed according to politico, romney advisers are now split over how broadly they should hit the president over his handling of that attack. and why it took so long to acknowledge that it was an act of terrorism. while some romney advisers argue they should keep their focus on the economy, politico says plans are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you think he should do that? >> yes. i think, as i said, right after the killing, that wasn't the time to talk about this. >> right. >> now is the time, several weeks later, to talk about it. john heilemann, the lead in "the new york times," mistake in faith and security seen at libya mission before benghazi raid. response to the

-hitting opinion piece in the "wall street journal." he's blasting president obama on foreign policy and calling for the restoration of american influence in that region. he writes by failing to maintain an influence and stepping away from our allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. bill: the governor's running-mate echoing those sentiment. paul ryan telling chris wallace the handling of the attack in libya reflects only one part of a larger problem. >> the response was slow. it's inconsistent. the obama foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes on our tv screens. bill: governor romney will give a major foreign policy speech soon after the first debate ends. the first debate ends wednesday night, as you know. martha: marshalackburn has also criticized the white house response. she'll join us on what she thinks should happen next. we are getting reports of another homicide bombing killing 14 people, two of them americans. the bomber drove into a nato patrol. doug mcelway joins us live. it was a couple weeks ago the u.s. suspended patrols with afghan sol
, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's running mate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll go through that process with congress. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> i can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers, are going to have fewer deductions and exe
on foreign policy, releasing a scathing attack being the president's handling of mideast policy. here is the governor speaking with our carl cameron yesterday react being to the president's overall foreign policy and his recent comments about the violence. >> i think when the president said the developments in the middle east are like bumps in the road, i think he badly misunderstandses the nature of what is happening in the middle east, not just the assassination of our diplomats but a muslim brotherhood leader becoming the president of egypt, 20,000 people being killed in syria, iran moving towards nuclear capability, the developments in the middle east are far from being bumps in the road. jon: joining us now former u.s. ambassador to the u.n., ambassador john bolt tops, also a fox news contributor and a mitt romney supporter i should add. we are joined by cia covert operations officer mike baker. welcome, gentlemen to goat of you. mr. ambassador, ahmadinejad was here last year, he was here the year before that, this was to be his last address to the u.n. general assembly as iran's
on the administration's response and the president's foreign policy. >> the response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. in this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself but the problem is bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> reporter: he said he would let others decide if the president was involved in a cover-up. meantime, obama advisors responded to intel information as they received it. they say the attack was a complex in situation and wasn't clear this was a terrorist attack. >> the information was arrived at and determinations were made. that was shared with the american people. i think again the focus needs to be how do we make sure our facilities and ambassadors and personnel are secure going forward. >> reporter: and obama advisor david axelrod says we don't need a president that shoots first and aims later. >> heather: steve, thank you very much. >>> meanti
's foreign policy spokesman to the world as ambassador to the u.n. she is a very nice person. very smart. but the fact is she gave out information either intentionally or unintentionally reading or wrong. now, clearly she was put out by the administration. who feed her -- who fed her. what she was supposed to say. that's what we need to know. was it a chief of staff? >> right. that's still the question. >> that's what pat buchanan. saying this whole thing was planned by the administration. had to come from somewhere. listen. >> >> let's go to susan rice. five days after this terrorist attack. she is booked on knive news shows and uses exact terminology. not spontaneous. premeditated planned at all. told to go out there by people must have known the intelligence and therefore using these people, these administration people to deceive and to mislead unless they were utterly stupid about what happened. that we ought to find out who told ms. rice to go out and say that. who told carney to go out and say that. because we now know it was utterly false. >> does she get off the hook as a result
in their foreign policy and they're saying national security is one of their biggest strengths. >> okay. felicia, here's john kerry. he signed a letter with other senate intelligence committee members for more info on the libya matter. take a listen to this. >> the republicans are working overtime to try to exploit a very normal, run of the course, administrative letter that we agreed to on a bipartisan basis in our committee, simply to get some additional questions put in front of the state department. >> he goes on to say it's all political now. i mean, is this going to become a campaign issue? >> absolutely. you're already seeing it become a big issue on the campaign. particularly on the republican side. of course. the problem, though, is that the house and the senate both adjourned for the rest of this year, up until after the election, earlier this month, and so if this is going to be an issue that republicans wield against the obama ticket it's going to be one that they're going to have to do on the campaign trail. now, that spelled a problem for mitt romney because it's just one of the la
it was for the pentagon. >> to that point, michael, they've said that's one of their foreign policy victories. we ended the war in iraq yet at the same time there's so much iranian influence and so much suspicion of the shiite connection to iranians and the fact that iran used their airspace. do you think that this is a safe space for them to keep bragging about iraq or is iraq still a work in progress, very much a work in progress? >> well, what i tried to do in the book with general trainor was assess the administration in terms of what they themselves tried to do in iraq. they tried to do much more than just take the troops out. they tried to construct basically a coalition government, a partnership government in which power would be shared because there's a lot of concern that maliki is acting in a authoritarian way. they did try to negotiate an agreement to keep small force in iraq of 3,000 to 5,000. they did plan to have a substantial number of american police trainers. civilian presence to keep american influence in that part of the world. none of those things that they tried to do really happen
's a complicated picture. >> this is another case where some of the criticism of the president's foreign policy is that he doesot develop relationships wi these foreign leaders d it's clear inhis caseha hd t. also residual suspicion of general petraeus. i was there when general petraeus was still running iraq and barack obama was a candidate when he first went to iraq. and that relationship did not get off to a good footing. >> you owheinat gave vice president biden the lead for iraq policy. when it came to the big decisions, president obama had to get engaged. i found it string that during this whole negotiation over keeping troops in iraq,e talked by the secure deoconferences that they do. he talked to prime minister maliki twice. president obama, for him, iraq was a mh more importa priority rightly or wrongly and he was engaged on a weekly basis. i do think that had an eect on iri tihe was an extraordinary request that president obama made to the president of iraq to resign his position to make way for another person. it's hard to make that kind of request when you don't have an ongoing rela
to be foreign policy and that was just after the meltdown of lehman brothers. jim hehr asked some domestic policy questions. it's not moderator jail if you make a mistake. >> do you typically have that kind of freedom? >> no, but what if they are going to do if they ask that. i'm not sure it rises to this point. i doubt he would do it. i'm sure both candidates will be prepared for it. >> it will be great to see your interview with paul ryan who is the vice presidential nominee. chris, thanks so much. >> alisyn: up next, red states rising. new statistics show personal income is up in republican leaning states. who is responsible for their growth? we're going to ask wisconsin's lieutenant governor. >> and new jersey wants you to buckle up your pets. governor chris christie is saying wait a minute. more ahead. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ honey i just wonder ♪ >>> spain turns violent as thousands of protestors clash with police, demonstrators are upset over budget cuts. two people were said to be hurt and 12 detained. you could end up paying more for plane tickets after you buy them. if they get the
